Overview

Incorporated in 1639, Sandwich is the oldest town on Cape Cod. It is located on both sides of the Cape Cod Canal with the majority of its population and land mass on the southerly side of the canal. Sandwich is a mostly residential community with a winter population considerably smaller than the population during the summer. Residents feel that its charm and uniqueness combined with its ideal location make Sandwich a very attractive place both to live and visit.

Sandwich's beaches along Cape Cod Bay stretch for miles and provide a wonderful view on a clear day of the many vessels that pass through the Cape Cod Canal on their way to or from Boston. Commercial fishermen and lobstermen sail from the docks at the Sandwich Marina, the only harbor along the canal. Not too far from the marina is historic Sandwich Village, which is a world renowned tourist destination, providing a glimpse into New England's rich colonial history.

Heritage Plantation, Sandwich Glass Museum, the Thornton Burgess Museum, Hoxie House (the oldest house on Cape Cod), Daniel Webster Inn, Dexter Grist Mill and various art galleries, rare book and antique stores are some examples of the attractions which bring visitors to Sandwich from all across New England and the world.
